  1. Looking forward to this trip. This is my first fishing trip in Texas. I stopped by Bayou City Angler to pick up some flys. They didn’t know what 1/2 of the flys on the list were, but they set me up with what they felt would be some good bass flys. We’ll see 🙂

  2. 30 people made the event. Good times with good people. Working on the fishing report today and tomorrow.

    I have a request: If you have any pictures you are willing to share. Please send them to “Puck” or post them up on Evite with the story.
